New 2013 Kentucky Derby point standings as of March 30

Who will win the roses?

The weekend races gave us a new point leader on the Road to the Kentucky Derby and added a few new horses to the standings. Who will be the 2013 Kentucky Derby winner? Who wants the roses the most? With the new point schedule, the 2013 Kentucky Derby prep races that are run the closest to the Derby give horses an automatic berth in the big dance on the first Saturday in May.

The UAE Derby win for Lines of Battle put him in the top 3 and he will not be knocked out of the Top 20. Second place finisher Elleval may have enough points but is not nominated to the Derby.

Louisiana Derby winner Revolutionary cannot be touched in the Top 20 with 110 points. Second place finisher Mylute with his 42 points and is probably a “go” to be in the Top 20.

Florida Derby winner Orb sits at the TOP of the standings with a whopping 150 points. Second place finisher,
Itsmyluckyday added 40 points to his 10 from a prior race so he will be in the Top 20 too!
